TAIPEI - New Zealand's teen sensation Lydia Ko shot a 3-under 69 for a total of 205 in Taiwan's Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters tournament Sunday, capturing her first title since turning professional in October. The 16-year-old, who was just one shot behind world number five Ryu So-Yeon after two rounds, ended three strokes ahead of Ryu, who struggled with her putting on the back nine to end on 73. "I certainly didn't expect to win in my second professional tournament. It's great to win here and it's a great tournament," said Ko. "I wasn't really sure I would win until the tap-in on the 18th hole," Ko said, speaking of her tense race with Ryu to the finish. Despite the pressure Ko showed composure and maturity beyond her years, carding five birdies and two bogeys on the final round.–AFP
